Following hot on the heels of the partnership deal signed with Turkish Airlines in June 2016, Malindo Air has recently signed an interline partnership with middle Eastern airline Qatar Airways. This new partnership will connect passengers through both networks to more than 190 destinations worldwide. The agreement took effect on 8th July.
With a growing route map in short haul destinations, particularly throughout ASEAN, Malindo Air will offer Qatar Airways passengers the convenience of making a single booking for flights across both networks when they fly into Malindo’s Kuala Lumpur Hub. This will give them easy connectivity to (currently) 36 cities in 13 countries, as well as across 13 airports within Malaysia.
…. We are delighted to partner Qatar Airways, one of the world’s best airlines renowned for its aviation excellence and onboard hospitality. The agreement will further enhance Malindo Air’s reach beyond KLIA to all destinations served by Qatar Airways. Malindo Air is now able to bring our passengers further than ever before, with onward flights connecting passengers to more than 100 global destinations through Qatar Airways’ state-of-the-art hub, Hamad International Airport in Doha. This partnership will also give convenience for travellers from all corners of the globe to visit Malaysia and experience our diverse culture, explore our eco-tourism and enjoy the renowned Malaysian hospitality. Our extensive network coverage in Malaysia will enhance the choice of travel destinations to Visit Malaysia for customers in both the business and leisure segments. Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy
Malindo Air Passengers can catch one of three Qatar Airways daily flights to Doha in Qatar, from where they can connect to over a hundred Qatar Airways destinations worldwide.
…. By partnering carriers such as Malindo Air, Qatar Airways is able to expand our regional footprint and continue to drive passenger growth on our Malaysia route and here in the ASEAN region. We take pride in being a global connector and now with the Malindo Air interline agreement, Malindo Air passengers will find it easier to travel to new leisure and business destinations in Qatar Airways’ expansive network whilst enjoying the high quality service we are known for. Many of Malindo Air’s regional destinations are now also within easy reach of Qatar Airways’ passengers, providing greater ease of travel for passengers travelling to and from cities where we previously do not serve.
